About this pro

Very patient, 45 years of teaching golf as a PGA Golf Professional, teachig golfers of all levels, all aspects of golf. I know how to help the student acquire golf skills in short order and with a minimum amount of time and effort spent. I like to use a little levity at any possible opportunity. Email summarys of information regarding each lesson and utilize video analysis, launch monitor and the latest technology BodiTrak pressure mat which helps my students to use ground force better.  I shot 63 and only played about 30 rounds of golf that year. I teach golf at my home in an in-door outdoor studio and I guarantee you technology is the way to go. I also teach at a near by Golf Range in Arlington Texas. Check me out at www.coopersgolfpark.com    Instruction tab

I love helping students to enjoy the game of golf, so much so that I would do it for free, except my wife and my dog would object.

I love watching the look on students faces when they hit that ball solid, make a great chip, pitch or putt or just understand and feel what I am passing on to them.

    Bob was very patient and showed me a ton of things in my lesson to help improve my game. Improved my grip and postures. Will continue to use Bob and my instructor and coach. Highly recommend .

    Bob is a fantastic coach, and someone I’ve recommended to everyone I know. I’ve gotten two lessons so far and each time I’ve left with information that has drastically improved my game.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I watch them swing and notice the good things first in order to evailuate how to approach the process I will use, and in 1 or 2 swings can pretty much determine what they know and their athletic ability. I compliment them I the good things and then begin working on the fundamentals. I believe that 90 percent of all golf shots is the setup. The motion is not that difficult to obtain, it is all about the process.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have been teaching a 77 year old gentleman who had never played golf before. He is not the greatest athlete in the world and has a difficoult time remembering things, to a degree. I have given him 11 one half hour lessons so far and have had to teach him every fundamental, feel and movement in the swing. This includes the grip, setup, posture, weight shift, how to use the mind and eyes, pre-shot routine, grip size, and many more aspects of the swing. He is hitting a nine iron 120 yards with a little draw on it and he is a joy to teach.
